The annual SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival is one of the world’s most important showcases for innovative and visually stunning digital animation. Films that win honors here are qualified to compete for an Academy Award, and several in recent memory have been nominated for or received an Oscar for “Best Animated Short.” Films chosen for this special “best of” show include narrative shorts, time-based art, visual effects, scientific visualization, and real-time graphics.

The SIGGRAPH 2017 Selects is a collection of animated shorts from the larger Computer Animation Festival, The CAF is shown each year at SIGGRAPH, an International Conference.

This year, SIGGRAPH 2018 will be in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A brief talk will be given beforehand to describe SIGGRAPH the organization and the conference, a five-day immersion into the latest innovations in CG, Animation, VR, Games, Digital Art, Mixed Reality and Emerging Technologies. Come to Vancouver with us this year and experience research, hands-on demos and fearless acts of collaboration.


PNCA’s Mediatheque is on the first floor. There’s a front desk where people can check-in. Enter on NW 8th off Glisan and follow directions to the Mediatheque (central screening room). Parking is available on the street although we encourage car-pooling and use of mass transit.





About the PNCA Animated Arts BFA Program

Animated Arts expands the notion of animation to embrace the hybrid moving image, encouraging you to explore and combine fine art practices and digital technologies. At a time when the boundaries between live action, animation, painting, photography, illustration, and design are dissolving, an interdisciplinary fine art approach encourages you to reimagine and create frame-based work for multiple contexts.

In addition to learning principles of animation, you experiment with a variety of media, production methods, and narrative strategies to produce work for multiple and varied platforms. We teach the history of animated arts in the context of a broad engagement with both cinema and fine art.
